The Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Zhang Ziyi starred film LOVE FOR LIFE (JUI OI) two nights ago held a charity premiere at Admiralty. Lead actress Zhang Ziyi did not attend. Before the premiere, Sing Sing first attended an AIDS event. Because the movie was about AIDS patients, the film worked with the China AIDS Initiative Hong Kong chapter. Sing Sing in support of the event wore a red ribbon on his chest.
Sing Sing shared with guests the tragedy of AIDS patient discrimination. Because he played an AIDS patient in the film, he deeply felt it. During the shoot he cried many times as well. He said, "You can be born with AIDS, babies can catch it in the womb. In this production several real patients worked with us. We not only made a movie but also a documentary about how the patients lived with us." Sing Sing said that during the shoot he constantly played with an child with AIDS, but he would not be infected.
Why was lead actor Zhang Ziyi absent? He said that she was promoting in Singapore. He said, "Actually it's no big deal. This time we have nine promotional stops, I am only going to three. The most important is bringing attention to this event." He also said that for this film he spent three months to learn Shunde dialect and understand patient symptoms because he had to play from getting sick, being sick to passing away. He said, "I have read many film reviews. Even my idol John Woo (Ng Yu Sum) praised me, I am very happy." Has his rumored girlfriend Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam) seen the film? He said that she has not. Did he know that Lynn has returned to Nanjing to visit her father? Sing Sing said that he would not discuss anything else.
